Butler Cist 3 Vol. 4. Map 60.26 (diagram p.195). "A probable but unusual cist is on steep well drained, NW facing slope. It utilizes the south east side of a massive slab, 1.6m long, 0.4m thick and 0.7m high, with smaller slabs 0.6m to 0.9m long and 0.2m thick, which barely project above ground level".
